Shop. Later C19, altered. Red brick with stone dressings,
slate roof. Rectangular plan at right-angles to street.
Eclectic style. Four storeys divided into 2 halves
(stylistically at odds with one another), the lower of one
wide bay with ground- and 1st-floor openings contained under a
full-width segmental arch with moulded imposts and keyed head,
and the upper with piers making 3 bays (1:2:1 windows). The
ground floor has corner pilasters with crocket capitals (and a
C20 shop front), and the 1st floor has a 3-light window, the
outer lights in the form of oriels with pargetted underhangs
and swept lead roofs, and a pargetted tympanum above. The
upper half of the facade, in muscular Gothic style, has
bracketed sill-bands and corbel tables, shouldered
segmental-headed sashed windows to 1st floor, those in the
centre coupled with a crocket-capital shaft between, similar
windows to the outer bays at 2nd floor and a 2-centred arch in
the centre containing 2 arched sashed lights with similar
shafts, a gable over this flanked by simple pinnacles.
Included for group value.
